Finally picked up my allocations to try this beer! Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange color with a small white head. Scent is...WOW! I remember reading reviews of this beer when it was first released, and someone said it didn't have a good nose on it. I respectfully disagree with that. The nose is like a delicious desert. I get some definite white chocolate...even a little bit of a cheesecake aroma. Sweet, boozy vanilla aromas with some lovely bourbon. A good amount of vanilla with a hint of orange. Taste is not a dessert-ish as the nose. It is definitely still a sipper and rich like a desert, but the wheatwine characteristics kick in, making it not so rich. Still has some boozy bourbon and vanilla flavors, but also has some orange citrus flavors. Some light maple syrup flavors with a sharp, cloying sweetness almost on the back of the palate. Very tasty beer. Mouthfeel is perfect for this style, as it is not overly carbonated and not too full-bodied. Drinkability is fairly high for what this is. Overall, there is no way in hell I could drink a whole bottle of this, as it is far too rich and sweet for one sitting. However, when shared amongst friends, this beer is brilliant.

Somewhat murky dark cream and light amber in color with a very small off-white head. There's not a lot of visible carbonation, but some. This leaves the glass oily and spotted with stick. Not a particularly attractive beer, and surprisingly light in color.
The aroma is something quite special and unlike anything I've experienced before in a beer; it's like walking into a Coldstone Creamery. Big notes of sweet vanilla cream, waffle cones, white chocolate, cake batter ice cream, and mild grain combine for something quite extraordinary.
The flavor isn't quite as impactful, though lovely amounts of vanilla, bourbon, wood, white chocolate, and waffle cone combine quite nicely. Moderate bitterness, and the alcohol is hidden exceptionally well considering the beast this beer actually is. Impressive and flavorful, though not as complex as Black Tuesday, Melange 3, and Fruet, to name a few recent Bruery world-beaters.
Full in body with low-moderate carbonation.
Just awesome. I don't think anybody actually expected this to taste/resemble white chocolate, but...it does!

2012 edition. I tried an infected 2013 version and, while interesting, wasn't appropriate to review.
A: Ripe apricot. Hazy. Barely any lacing.
S: Big bourbon barrel character with caramel, vanilla, and butterscotch.
T: Very hot. Once the booze burn dissipates you get a wash of vanilla and caramel. The cacao nibs aren't particularly noticeable but that may be the light color affecting my experience of the flavor. There's an apple-esque tartness in the finish; not an infection tartness but perhaps some esters from the base wheatwine.
M: Not as thick as I had anticipated but very hot. The burn runs from the mouth all the way to the stomach.
O: It's a pleasure finally getting to try this. A beautiful scent, a good flavor. Was it worth the hunt? Perhaps, perhaps not. I am, however, looking forward to trying the next version.
